Effect of storage conditions on the viability of ornamental seeds



Effect of storage conditions on the viability of ornamental seeds



Proceedings of the Fourth International Workshop on Seeds: basic and applied aspects of seed biology, Angers, France, 20-24 July, 1992 Volume 3: 799-803



Seeds of 50 species of ornamental plants were stored at 3 or 15 degrees C and at 90, 70 or 30% RH. Moisture content, germination at temperatures of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30 or 35 degrees , seedling emergence and yield of seeds obtained from these plants were examined in each of 2 years. Lowering the temperature and the RH extended seed longevity considerably in the majority of species studied. Optimal conditions for storage for a few years depended on species.
